Victor (Japan), 2015. New Copy
The other side of Monday Michiru – or, more appropriately, the early side of the great soul singer – given that her roots in jazz go very far back, to the time when she was the child of two very famous jazz musicians! This set has Monday reunited with her mother – the legendary ... CD

Ego Death
Columbia, 2015. New Copy
Pure wonderfulness from Internet – a group who seem to bound forward strongly with each new release! These guys are easily one of the most compelling mainstream soul acts we can think of – still very lean, and working with an indie-level vibe – but also able to focus in on hooks ... CD

VII
Conyadosssongs, 2015. New Copy
Hard to believe we're hearing a seventh full album from the great Conya Doss – but we've also been loving the lady so long, it's hard to believe we could ever do without her! As before, Conya's working here at a level that's really a cut above – wonderful vocals, thoughtful songwriting ... CD

Blue Note, 2014. New Copy
Jose James sounds even deeper than ever here – really moving forward with that amazing voice, and really finding a special space between all the jazz, soul, and funk projects of previous years! The album has James almost emerging as a singer who can span genres and reach out to new scenes ... CD

Voodoo
Virgin, 2000. Used
Sweet and gritty soul from D'Angelo – who takes a huge step into deeper territory on Voodoo – and it's one of the most monumental records of its time! On one level, Voodoo works as a nicely stripped-down session with a very classic soul feel. Gone are the overzealous flourishes that ... CD

Hopes Too High
Basement Boys, 2006. Used
Tremendous work from Marcell – a singer with roots in gospel, but working here in secular soul – at a level that reminds us a fair bit of DJ Rogers or Donny Hathaway's best work from many years back! Marcell's got an incredible voice – fluid, feeling, and righteous – and he ... CD

Hidden Beach, 2000s. New Copy
A pretty wonderful retrospective of Jill Scott's years at Hidden Beach – timeless, richly emotional neo classic soul from one of the leading lights of her generation! We've been fans of Jill's from the first album onward, and if you're a younger fan, this excellent collection is a great place ... CD

Thoughtiverse Unmarred
Mello Music Group, 2015. New Copy
Take a trip into the Thoughtiverse with Georgia Anne Muldrow – a singer who's every bit as cosmic as before, but also finds a way to get nice and funky too! The album's got Georgia rhyming and singing in equal parts – always with that unique perspective that makes her music so ... CD

Good Things
Stones Throw, 2010. New Copy 2LP
Cinematic soul rooted in the rawer organ, drums and horns vibes that resonated deeply in records from north to south in the 70s – done with a lean, tight and head nodding groove no doubt informed by Aloe Blacc's own roots in hip hop – on his best album yet and one of best raw soul ...

Jungle Mumbo Jumbo
Plug Research, 2013. New Copy
The long-overdue return of Coultrain – an artist we've been digging right from the start, when he dropped off a pile of handmade CDs as freebies to give away in our store! Since that time, Coultrain has emerged to become one of the freshest talents of the underground – through work ... CD

Lady
Truth & Soul, 2013. Used
The long-overdue return of soulsinger Terri Walker – teamed up here brilliantly with Nicole Wray, and served up in a format that's even better than before! Lady have a style that's totally great – a really old school female duo, presented with strong Truth & South touches that ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Sweet Melodies
Cicada (France), 2005. Used
A great set of work from singer Crystal Night – recorded in France, but with a real American sense of soul! There's a lightly dancing vibe to the whole set that we really like – a mode that glides along a bit more than some of the current work from the Neo Soul underground – ... CD

Coming Home
Columbia, 2015. New Copy
An album with a very classic look on the cover – and an equally classic sound to match – one that takes us back to some of the hippest, coolest work by early 60s singers like Sam Cooke or Marvin Gaye! Both artists are a good comparison here, as Leon Bridges is unabashedly in the same ... CD
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Stargazer
Candigirl, 2015. New Copy
It's been way way too long since we last heard from Carmen Rodgers (her debut was over a decade ago) – but it's really great to have her back, and sounding better than ever! Carmen's really grown up a lot over the past few years – and she's got this tight, sophisticated groove that ... CD

Blue Note, 2015. New Copy
A sublime take on the music of Billie Holiday – served up in the tremendous vocals of Jose James! In the notes, James recalls that the music of Holiday is one of his first memories of childhood – and goes onto explain how much her music has meant to him over the years – a ... CD

No Beginning No End
Blue Note, 2013. New Copy
A great new chapter in the career of Jose James – and a record that really seems to take his already-amazing vocals to a whole new level! In a relatively short career, Jose's already been turning a lot of heads with his work on other projects, his jazz-based recordings, and his debut for ... CD

Universal, 2011. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
A (sadly) posthumous release from Amy Winehouse – a voice we loved for a couple good years before knowing how troubled she was in real life and now lament the loss of – and this set, largely put together by producer Salaam Remi turned out surprisingly well! It'd be pretty easy to bow ... LP, Vinyl record album
